about it. but have you played lindsay graham's message on sunday on cnn when he said that the republicans did not have a plan and their main focus was to deny everything criticize everything that the president has tried to do. that's their whole focus, just like the last four years was to deny him a second term. now it's to criticize and deny everything that he does. and why would you manufacture a problem? and another thing, this transportation person, why didn't you get the real man? maybe you did get ray lahood? host: we heard from ray lahood in his briefing to white house reporters on friday. keith is a reporter from the hill and covers transportation and that's his specialty. can you reflect on the comments that she had especially in relation to when the cuts kick in and when will they be felt? guest: there is a disagreement about that. and the cuts that they're talking about now are from the 2013 budgets. the agencies would have discretion on how to distribute those cuts and just would have to make these reductions across the board if the sequestration is implem
qaeda, unquote. one many explained to me over tea in the capital last month. another told cnn after a failed strike, quote, i would not be surprised if 100 tribesmen joined al qaeda as a result of the latest drone mistake, unquote. rather than promote the author of a failing strategy, we need a c.i.a. director who will halt the agency's creeping militarization and restore it to what it does best. i would say what it did best at one time. collecting human intelligence. it's an intelligence agency, not a lightweight version of joint special operations command. and until america wins the intelligence war, missiles will continue to hit the wrong targets, kill too many civilians, and drive young men into waiting arms of our enemies. without accurate on the ground intelligence, our policies will fail, george w. bush launched two major ground invasions, and mr. obama has tried several smaller wars, neither strategy has worked. in yemen, which has been the laboratory for mr. obama's shadow wars, aqap has more than tripled in size after three years of drone strikes. when the united states st
, that is a critical priority. we have heard both former c.i.a. director michael hayden in an interview on cnn and a general say that it is now changed and that the impact of those strikes is creating a backlash. for example, it was said that the unmanned strikes is greater than the what they can appreciate. they are hated on a visceral level. he add the targeted killings add to the presence of american arrogance. he said this adds to the perception of americans that said we can fly where we want, we do what we want because we can. general hayden also has expressed concerns that now that the strikes are being used at lower levels, arguably, that they are creating a backlash that is undermining the credibility of government and creating new terrorists when a neighbor or family member is killed in the course of the operations. do you agree with general mcchrystal and director hayden about the backlash of strikes from the targeted killings at this point? i am not talking about the initial strikes. >> that is something that we need to be mindful of in terms of reaction, any type of u.s. counter-te
